Other Custom Woodcraft
Other assorted custom woodcraft Johan does, such as handmade backgammon sets, chess tables, wooden trophies, parquet flooring and ceilings, wooden signs, plus other odds and ends. Many of these sorts of projects have required Johan to apply his skill in marquetry, parquetry, inlaying and intarsia.
Please peruse Johan’s portfolio below and feel free to contact him to discuss any custom woodcraft you need done. He is able to make anything for you — if you can imagine it, Johan can make it!
The workshop is based in Knysna, South Africa, but most goods can be supplied anywhere.
